Optical Illusion
Which piece is longer the top or bottom?

Materials Tools
Craft Foam
PVC Ring
White Glue
Hot Glue

See the Moving Chapter for more instructions, hints, tips, and ideas.

Cut out a small (.5" x 1.5") and large rectangle (1.5" x 3") from the craft foam. Break the spaghetti into 2 pieces one about 2 inches long and the other about 1 inch long. Glue the two pieces of spaghetti to the large piece of craft foam. They should be close together (but not touching) and at an angle to the foam that covers them. The two ends should be lined up. It helps the illusion if you slightly angle the short piece toward the long piece. Use white glue unless you are in a hurry, then use hot glue.

Hot glue the small rectangle over the pieces of spaghetti so that it acts like a flap. Only one end of the short piece of spaghetti should be visible.

Hot glue a ring to the back to make a neckerchief slide.
